“Becoming an architect is a lifelong process.” words spoken true of my history professor, a noted architectural historian from freshman year at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Despite these unprecedented times we are living through, I believe that it is so important to constantly stay prepared and keep evolving, as we enter the next, unknown phase, professionally.
Please allow me to share with readers, viewers, and browsers an ongoing, perpetual documentary on staying intact with the architecture profession since the start of the pandemic, mid-March 2020.
This follows my most recent firm experience at Harding Partners with historic renovation work on Frank Lloyd Wright homes and Chicago Public Schools. Also, noted experience was in business development contracts and submittals to the Chicago Housing Authority and to the Public Building Commission on joint venture projects.
